Page Springs Cellars will have its seventh annual Harvest Festival Sept. 2.
“It’s been an interesting year with the Arizona weather being as unpredictable as ever, but we’re really excited to see this harvest through,” said Eric Glomski, Page Springs Cellars’ founder and winemaker. “There’s a great chance that we’ll be bottling some of our best wines from this harvest.”
The event, held at the center of the Estate Vineyard on Oak Creek in Cornville, will feature live entertainment headlined by The Wicked Koalition, a band created by Arizona Blues Hall of Famer Jimmy Mack. Returning to Page Springs’ Harvest Festival for the seventh year, The Wicked Koalition features a number of touring and recording musicians who have appeared with popular musical legends of the last 30 years, including Elton John, Tina Turner, Stevie Wonder, Garth Brooks and B.B. King.
Other acts including Alisa Fineman and Kimball Hurd; acoustic-based psychedelic Americana band Decker; City Folk; and acoustic rock band Redland will perform throughout the day before The Wicked Koalition takes the stage to close the festivities.
Page Springs Cellars is a family-owned and operated vineyard and winery in northern Arizona’s Verde Valley. The label prides itself on producing high-quality, small batch wines, handcrafted by Arizona winemaking trailblazer and one of the state’s largest winegrowing advocates, Eric Glomski and his winemaking team.
The family-friendly event will feature more activities for kids this year, with two hay bale mazes, face painting, magicians, clowns and balloon twisters. Adults will have plenty of opportunity to share in the fun with horseshoe and bocce games throughout the day.
